Good Morning America ABC February 1, 2016 7:13am-7:16am PST
>> hillary clinton on top of the democrats right now. donald trump on top for the republicans. he joins us now by phone. good morning, mr. trump. good to have you again with us this morning. you know, you have never actually faced voters before, are you nervous? >> well, you have to be a little bit nervous. you know i like to win. i want to win for the country. not for myself. this is actually my first election night. i've gone through many election nights but always for someone else, george. this is a little bit different for me. >> i'm sure it is. what worries you most? >> well, i just hope everybody is going to be able to get out and vote. it looks like we're going to skirting the weather the weather will be okay. it won't start snowing until everything is over. we just made it. that was a biggie. i hope everybody gets out and votes. we have had the biggest crowds of anybody, including sanders who's second. i will say that. we have the most enthusiasm.
you have to see these rallies -- they're like love fests. i believe they're going to go
out and vote. the theme is, make america great again. this is the chance. i'm self-funding my campaign. i'm the only one doing that, george. i'm putting up my money. nobody else is doing that. i think that's a big difference. lot of people like that. but there's great enthusiasm in those rooms and all over the state and all over every state. you know, when you look at new hampshire, you saw the polls where there's i guess a 25-point lead. in iowa, i think we're going to do really well and we're going to find out soon. >> your staying power has surprised so many people so far, i was wondering what your response is to chris christie and he said donald will take himself down over time.
i think we might have lost mr. trump. >> yes, i have you. did you get that? >> i hear your fine. >> what is your response to chris christie who said you're going to take yourself down over time. >> well, people said i wasn't going to run. then, they said, if i ran, he would have fun and leave. now i'm in first place. chris took himself down when he did the george washington bridge. and when he's rated 50 out of 50 in jersey. new jersey is the 50th worse state. meaning it's the last. he shouldn't be talking like that. i'm surprised he would talk like that. because i know him. i guess he used to be a friend until this all happened. no, i think it's been just the opposite. i would be very surprised. he's got enough problems and he's doing very poorly in the polls. i'm surprised that he would have said that. my life has been a life of success, it's been a life of winning, it's been a life of
making great deals. it's been a life -- i have achieved tremendous success in so many different ways. for somebody to say that, obviously, isn't doing really well right now is pretty unusual, i think. >> you'll be facing the voters for the first time tonight. we'll be talking to your sons in the next half-hour. thank you for joining us this morning. we'll be talking to you later as well. >> thank you very much.
